Your letter to the bugman:  Found this cool guy on my trash bin with another smaller fly in its mouth. It also had a long stinger/appendage coming out of its bottom.  It was not afraid of me and simply wanted to finish its meal
How you want your letter signed:  Katy

Robber Fly eats Fly

Dear Katy,
The predator is a Robber Fly in the family Asilidae, but we are uncertain of the species.  Robber Flies are amazing predators that capture prey while flying.
